Meanwhile, In Boxing: Former NFL Defensive End Ray Edwards Scores The Phantomest of Phantom Punch KO’s [VIDEO]

(Your move, Sonny Corleone.)

I have seen some incredible flops in my day, Potato Nation. I’ve watched nearly 1000 hours of World Cup soccer, I spent two summers in the 90′s at the Vlade Divac School of Basketball, and I even made it through the first 40 minutes of Cloud Atlas before I faked a stroke to get out of that God forsaken theater. But believe me when I say that nothing, nothing I’ve come across compares to the flop that took place during former Atlanta Falcons defensive end Ray Edwards’ most recent boxing match.

Edwards — who was released by the Falcons in November — was actually competing in his third professional boxing match last Saturday. But like Kimbo Slice and more notably Aleksander Emelianenko before him, the opponents being put before Edwards all seem to be suffering from various degrees of sudden onset narcolepsy. Here’s a video of Edwards’ second fight against Corey Briggs, a man I can only assume has since lost at least a foot to diabetes. And if you think that looked fishy, just wait until you see his most recent farce.

Video below. 

According to Edwards’ Wikipedia page, the portly trout seen taking an Oscar-level dive here goes by Nick “Turbo Tax” Capes, who is both Edwards’ accountant and was “knocked out with a stuff breeze” for filing his client’s taxes incorrectly. And while some of this information is clearly the work of an anonymous — not to mention genius — troll out there, we’d like to congratulate Capes for not only creating a new category for this year’s Potato Awards (Flop of the Year) with his effort here, but for already securing both the first and last place on the list of nominees.

Seriously, have any of you ever seen a more egregious dive than this one before? Video link or GTFO.

Would not want to go home to the family after that one.

It looks to me like it's POSSIBLE (however unlikely) that he was hurt by a punch on the top of the head about a second before he goes down. If he just fell it would have looked better, but it looks like he flies back from the whiffed punch, and that makes it look a LOT worse for his case. Just watch the couple seconds leading up to the "KO" and ask if it's possible he took a decent shot that rocked him before the missed punch that put him down. Looks like it could maybe have been a delayed reaction to a punch before the phantom shot.

I've seen better flops watching the 2000-2012 San Antonio Spurs play basketball

Okay, whoever is trolling Ray's Wikipedia page is brilliant:

"Edwards knocked out 600 pound Cory "Spare Tire" Briggs in 39 seconds in his second pro fight and stated he is ready to "smash" Vitali Klitschko and/or Wladimir Klitschko. In his third fight Ray nearly decapitated Nick "Turbo Tax" Capes at :13 of the first round in West Fargo, N.D. on Feb 9 without even throwing a punch. Edwards again called out either of the Klitschko Brothers."

obviously he's a disciple of Tom Cameron's dim mak techniques.

Seems legit.

Nick must have his SAG card.

Thumb up for "First off, he's only fighting at heavyweight because he eats entire bags of doritos in one sitting." alone.
